888poker Mystery Bounty Festival – Main Highlights
The online series is designed for players of all stakes, with plenty of events to choose from, from the micros to the high-rollers. The schedule is headlined by the Mystery Bounty Main Event which costs $160 to enter and features a $300,000 guarantee. On top of that, one lucky player will walk away with a top mystery bounty prize of $30,000.
The Main Event has multiple flights running from March 1-6, with Day 2 scheduled for March 6. The final table takes place on March 7 and will be live-streamed on 888poker’s official Twitch channel, 888pokerTV.
Apart from the Main Event, the series also includes a Mystery Bounty 8-Max tournament which comes with a $150,000 guarantee. Starting flights take place from February 23-27, with surviving players resuming the action on Day 2 on February 27. The finale takes place on February 28 and like the Main Event, it will also be live-streamed on Twitch.
Satellites, Freerolls, and Ticket Giveaways
Real money poker players have several ways to secure tickets for the Mystery Bounty Festival for a much cheaper price. 888poker is running satellites for the festival’s key events, including the Main Event where direct satellites start at $16.50.
Players can even enter tournaments without spending anything via Mystery Bounty Freerolls running daily on the site. There are also satellites that players can enter for as low as $0.01.
Additionally, the operator will be giving away free tickets through a “Gift Drop”. Some of the tickets will be awarded during 888pokerTV live streams on Twitch, so players must stay tuned. The site’s ambassadors, as well as the StreamTeam, will be handing out free tickets as well.
888poker has officially joined the Mystery Bounty craze, with the platform running mystery bounty tournaments daily. Every Sunday, the operator hosts a huge mystery bounty event that features $100,000 in guarantees, and it is proving to be a huge hit, attracting hundreds of players each week. 888poker is hoping to build on that success as it hosts an online series entirely dedicated to the popular format.
